It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!
You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

AND NOW…THE FIRST CHAPTER (Click on pictures to see them larger):
My Take: I really like this book. It looks like a regular book on the shelf, but it’s actually a board book. It has bright illustrations and simple text with instructions for the reader to add motions if desired. My youngest daughter enjoyed both the reading and the pictures. This is a fun was to share the Christmas story with the younger set who may be a bit bewildered at all the strange goings-on during this season.
